Scott and Simon are on a tour of Space City. They are from Australia and used a Space Elevator in Indonesia to get to Space City, which circles the Earth about 35,000km above the equator. They are on a Space City Bus travelling at 10,000km/h on their way to their second stop at 90 degrees east.

 

CHAPTER 6 Scott and Simon Viewing Bangladesh

SIMON

Come on Scott. Let’s go to the viewing area.

SCOTT

I really hate being in the zero gravity areas, Simon.

SIMON

We won’t be long. I want to have a good look at Bangladesh.

SCOTT

Right. I want to see what exactly is still above water too.

Both of them put on their boots for walking along the steel path to the viewing area which does not rotate like the section they had been in. The Observation Area is air filled and warm but they also have to put on their spacesuits as a precaution against something going wrong. Their magnetic boots have electromagnets on their bottoms to hold them to the steel plated pathways. The electromagnets in the boots are turned on when their foot is descending and off when their foot is ascending. They are also attached to a guide rail because there is no gravity in the Observation Area and while they can drift readily along it their attachment stops them drifting out of control throughout the whole area.

SIMON

Well, it’s not all under water.

SCOTT

So ten percent or so still above water is good?

SIMON

I guess it is pretty bad. Losing ninety percent of your land when you are overcrowded in the beginning makes you wonder where they have all gone.

SCOTT

Well, with the Impact a lot of them headed to Australia. Together with many millions of others of course.

SIMON

Yes, and that was a long time before the water got up. So I guess the population was not as big as I thought.

SCOTT

As the water rose they would have upset the Indians but by then we had the World Government. And religions were gone.

SIMON

Yes, the original division was because of different religions. And of course India had also lost a lot of people in the Impact.

SCOTT

I wonder if there were any Bengal tigers left before the Impact.

SIMON

I hope so. But if there weren’t I hope they have stored their DNA. Where they would have been is all under water. Not much hope of getting any DNA now.

SCOTT

With the water still rising a lot of people are still going to have to move. And there will definitely be no tiger home left out of the water.

SIMON

And only a very small bit of Bangladesh still out of it. There must be a lot of the world’s population thankful for it now having just one government and no religions so they can be moved to anywhere safe.

SCOTT

The Burmese would have just moved a bit north if they were still there. All their bottom bit is under water.

SIMON

I am glad they started storing the DNA of all species in the twenty first century. When the water does go down the Bengal tigers can be reintroduced to their original area.

SCOTT

Yes. Too many humans was one problem. Water going up was another. Let us hope that when the disaster caused by the humans from the beginning of the twenties is over the world will have a sensible government and a sensible number of humans.

SIMON

That message is made loud and clear to Maxwell 01 and the rest of the new Earths. Let’s hope the new humans heed the advice and don’t reproduce like rabbits.

SCOTT

Anyway Simon, I have had enough of a look at water, water, everywhere over Bangladesh. Let’s return to the comfort of our seats.

SIMON

Good. I have seen enough too. I would not like to have been a Bangladeshi.
